  • Rosenheim, Brad E.; Swart, Peter K.; Thorrold, Simon R.; Eisenhauer, Anton; Willenz, Philippe (American Geophysical Union, 2005-01-21)
    Recent studies comparing shipboard data between the 1950's and the 1990's have shown significant, heterogeneous adjustments of the temperature-salinity structure of the N. Atlantic Ocean. Here, we present proxy records of ...
  • Halliday, Elizabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2012-09)
    The marine fecal indicator Enterococcus is measured at beaches to detect fecal contamination events, and beaches are closed to bathers when Enterococcus is found to exceed the federally mandated limit. This dissertation ...
  • Lomas, Michael W.; Burke, A. L.; Lomas, D. A.; Bell, D. W.; Shen, C.; Dyhrman, Sonya T.; Ammerman, James W. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2010-02-19)
    Inorganic phosphorus (SRP) concentrations in the subtropical North Atlantic are some of the lowest in the global ocean and have been hypothesized to constrain primary production. Based upon data from several transect cruises ...
  • Myers, Ransom A.; Boudreau, Stephanie A.; Kenney, Robert D.; Moore, Michael J.; Rosenberg, Andrew A.; Sherrill-Mix, Scott A.; Worm, Boris (2006)
    The North Atlantic right whale is one of the most critically endangered marine species. Drastic overexploitation has driven this large, slow-swimming baleen whale to virtual extinction in Europe, while a small remnant ...
  • Green, Rebecca E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-06)
    Predictions of chlorophyll concentration from satellite ocean color are an indicator of phytoplankton primary productivity, with implications for foodweb structure, fisheries, and the global carbon cycle. Current models ...
  • Staudigel, Hubert; Koppers, Anthony A. P.; Lavelle, J. William; Pitcher, Tony J.; Shank, Timothy M. (Oceanography Society, 2010-03)
    Seamounts are fascinating natural ocean laboratories that inform us about fundamental planetary and ocean processes, ocean ecology and fisheries, and hazards and metal resources. The more than 100,000 large seamounts are ...
  • Shank, Timothy M. (Oceanography Society, 2010-03)
    Seamount systems that are geographically, hydrographically, topographically, and/or genetically “isolated” are likely to have developed highly endemic taxa and ecosystems. Although current estimates of endemism are challenged ...
  • Shyu, Esther; Pardini, Eleanor A.; Knight, Tiffany M.; Caswell, Hal (Ecological Society of America, 2013-12)
    The population effects of harvest depend on complex interactions between density dependence, seasonality, stage structure, and management timing. Here we present a periodic nonlinear matrix population model that incorporates ...
  • Johnson, Matthew D.; Stoecker, Diane K.; Marshall, Harold G. (2013-03)
    The photosynthetic ciliate Mesodinium rubrum is a common member of coastal phytoplankton communities that is well adapted to low-light, turbid ecosystems. It supports the growth of or competes with harmful dinoflagellate ...
  • Kurian, S.; Roy, Rajdeep; Repeta, Daniel J.; Gauns, M. U.; Shenoy, D. M.; Suresh, T.; Sarkar, A.; Narvenkar, G.; Johnson, Carl G.; Naqvi, S. W. A. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2012-07-09)
    Phytoplankton and bacterial pigment compositions were determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) in two freshwater reservoirs (Tillari Dam and Selaulim ...
  • Scheltema, Rudolf S.; Scheltema, Amelie H.; Williams, Isabelle P.; Halanych, Kenneth M. (2010-03-01)
    Plankton samples taken along the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula and in Bransfield Strait show widespread occurrence of Bathylasma corolliforme nauplius larvae during the austral spring, mid-October to the third ...
  • Hintsa, Eric J.; Dacey, John W. H.; McGillis, Wade R.; Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Zemmelink, Hendrik J. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-30)
    We measured vertical profiles of dimethylsulfide (DMS) in the atmospheric marine boundary layer from R/P FLIP during the 2000 FAIRS cruise. Applying Monin-Obukhov similarity theory to the DMS gradients and simultaneous ...
  • Moore, Michael J.; Walsh, Michael; Bailey, James; Brunson, David; Gulland, Frances M.; Landry, Scott; Mattila, David K.; Mayo, Charles; Slay, Christopher K.; Smith, Jamison; Rowles, Teresa K. (Public Library of Science, 2010-03-09)
    The objective of this study was to enhance removal of fishing gear from right whales (Eubalaena glacialis) at sea that evade disentanglement boat approaches. Titrated intra muscular injections to achieve sedation were ...
  • Hunter, Christine M.; Caswell, Hal (2004-09-17)
    Selectivity of harvest influences harvest sustainability because individuals with different characteristics contribute differently to population growth. We investigate the effects of selection based on chick weight on a ...
  • Caswell, Hal; Shyu, Esther (2012-04)
    Periodic matrix models are frequently used to describe cyclic temporal variation (seasonal or interannual) and to account for the operation of multiple processes (e.g., demography and dispersal) within a single projection ...
  • Verdy, Ariane; Caswell, Hal (2008-02)
    Ecological systems with asymptotically stable equilibria may exhibit significant transient dynamics following perturbations. In some cases, these transient dynamics include the possibility of excursions away from the ...
  • Diebel, Carol E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-03)
    Hyperiid amphipods are open ocean crustaceans which use gelatinous planktonic animals for food, shelter, and brooding space for their offspring. These associations involve varying degrees of host specificity; and there ...
  • Miller, Tom E. X.; Shaw, Allison K.; Inouye, Brian D.; Neubert, Michael G. (University of Chicago, 2011-04-07)
    Population models that combine demography and dispersal are important tools for forecasting the spatial spread of biological invasions. Current models describe the dynamics of only one sex (typically females). Such models ...
  • Querouil, Sophie; Freitas, Luis; Dinis, Ana; Alves, Filipe; Cascao, Irma; Prieto, Rui; Silva, Monica A.; Magalhaes, Sara; Matos, Jose A.; Santos, Ricardo S. (2009-01-16)
    Biological samples of free-ranging dolphins are increasingly used to gain information on population structure and ecology. In small cetaceans, the gender of individuals usually cannot be determined at sea, and population ...
  • Scotti, Alberto; Beardsley, Robert C.; Butman, Bradford; Pineda, Jesus (American Geophysical Union, 2008-08-19)
    The shoaling of the nonlinear internal tide in Massachusetts Bay is studied with a fully nonlinear and nonhydrostatic model. The results are compared with current and temperature observations obtained during the August ...
